Default suggestions for a cheap sight tube on boil kettle/hlt

Im ready to fire up my new herms this week but i didn't get any sight glass, and now its occured to me Im not going to be able to build one with off the shelf vinyl tube. any suggestions on what kind of clear tubing would handle the heat? Im in western canada so if I have to order in it ll push everything back a week.
Thanks Brad

Polycarbonate or pyrex is all I would suggest and it's not all that easy to find down at the corner hardware store.
